Once again official third parties do what Hasbro refuses to, just not transformable. At this point Hasbro will probably never give us a proper transforming Tarn figure despite his popular IDW stories and his visage now being all over the Cyberverse animated series, but at least we can get the next best official thing from Super7. The new Ultimate Tarn stands at a 7" scale (roughly the size of a Voyager) meaning he should work well with the modern Transformers scale. He includes an alternate unmasked head, a spare mask "prop", double canon, a bunch of hands and, most importantly, Nickle with her backpack. Could this open the door to more DJD members? Probably not, but it's still a good looking figure.

Meanwhile we never got that easy Titans Return Skullsmasher repaint into Alligaticon, the misassembled monsters made from Optimus Prime's parts from the G1 cartoon episode "City of Steel". This will be our first official Alligaticon figure, but he'll also include Prime's severed head, the tower Prime's arm was mounted to, and a Decepticon battle taxi, bet you thought we'd never get a figure of that!

The wave wraps up with less obscure G2 Megatron featuring both his G1 and G2 canons, extra hands, swappable blue and gray faces, a bunch of hands and many weapons straight out of the G2 comic. Then there's Wreck-Gar who comes with his cartoon and toy heads, cartoon and toy axes, Energon treats, a mini TV for Earth broadcasts, wax and cloth for detailing Ultra Magnus, gun wheel shields.

Ultimates wave 3 is expected to be out third quarter of 2022 and cost around $55 each. You can pick these up and just about any of our site sponsors. Big thanks to Seibertronians D-Maximal_Primal via email and AcademyofDrX on the Energon Pub Forums for letting us know.

And here I just recently tracked down a Junkion Blacksmith Optimus Prime headmaster to fully turn my Poison Dragon Skullcruncher KO into a "What if the Autobots had just decided to roll with Alligatormus Prime?" custom. Of course the colors don't quite match, and he's not complete until I find that Matrix sticker and put it under his tech-spec cover.

I was hoping one of G2 Megs' accessories would be the protoplasm stripper with an in scale Dr. Biggles Jones. Still might get him though.

While it is disappointing that Tarn gets yet another non-transforming figure, I am looking forward to that set. For one thing, I finally get Nickel, meaning my Scavengers literally will only need a Fulcrum. And for another, a non-transforming Tarn will go good on the Cyberverse shelf.

The other 3 are also pretty cool. This is a nice assortment

While I'm glad for a (relatively) more accessible Tarn - with Nickel as a bonus! -, I can't help but be amused that the character portrayed as so addicted to transformation he keeps burning through T-Cogs...has so far only non-transformable figures. :lol:

True, that character trait didn't play that big a part after his introduction, but still.

Super7 definitely got the attention of Transformers fans when they announced Transformers Action Masters as part of their Ultimates assortment. While pricey, they made more sense as an update than any other non transforming action figure of Transformers characters. Well, we now have in had images and assessments of all these figures. We have reviews from Toy Bro as well as in hand images from Weibo and a TF fan called analogue. Analogue's pictures of Action Master Bombshell are especially fun since we see a comparison to the G1 Action Master Bombshell which shows us how faithful this updated version is.

This first wave has Action Master Bombshell and Banzaitron as well as Optimus and Starscream.

Those are basically MP Action Masters.
But the line works very well for pretenders too.

I pre-ordered Bludgeon and I hope a Thunderwing is in the works.

As I half expected after handling their Voltron figure, these look great and that's about it. Optimus Prime has ZERO playability and can barely move, the RED figure looks better. I just canceled my order at BBTS. I think it's safe to say that Super7 will not be making figures that appeal to Transformer fans on a whole.

Eh, a bit disappointed the Action Master Partners don't work as well as the originals (except Needler, but even he needs partforming), but then again I should've expected it. Hasbro tends to be protective of the whole transformation conversion when it regards to third-party licenses.

Guess I'll save it for Alligaticon and Tarn, then.

Hmm, unsure on these in hand shots. They look pretty good, but I was hoping for a bit more shoulder movement, and it looks a little weird in person? Starscream in particular came out looking odd.

I plan to get Tarn. I'm still thinking on Banzaitron and Bludgeon, but not sure with the price tag on those ones yet

I just want them to look good on a shelf next to other Transformers and I think these will do the part. I pre-ordered ones that I thought would work well at the 7" Voyager height and likely wont get a good figure from Hasbro so Banzaitron, Bludgeon, Tarn, Alligaticon, and Grimlock (who's 9").

For me, this line and RED just miss the mark for the most part. Making better Action Masters is a nice idea, but any TF really has to transform.

The Aligaticon is the only one of these kind of figures that's tempting. I have a 3rd party one, though, and I'm happy with that for this kind of character. They'd have to get that level of niche. Maybe I'd get more Quintessons.

Loved Banzai-Tron back in the day, but this update screwed up his mouthplate: it's supposed to look like it was carved into a mouth with fangs, emulating some actual samurai armor face guards. This slight inversion would look OK, if someone hadn't missed the point. I was going to get some of these, but now I'll pass unless there's an affordable 3P replacement head for my favorite Action Master.

I LOVE what Super 7 is doing for Thundercats, and the whole ReAction line, but these TFs aren't quite living up to the "Ultimate" moniker.
Re: Super7 Ultimates Wave 3 Gives us Another Non-Transforming Tarn and Alligaticon (2134282)
Posted by AcademyofDrX on May 23rd, 2022 @ 8:32am CDT
I opened up my Banzai-tron, and he's basically exactly what I was looking for, a scaled-up Action Master. The articulation is more limited than I was expecting, but I think that's mostly due to the priority on the sculpt, which I can't find fault with. It still has the basics down, and I'm not planning to do anything too wild with him. I'm only getting one figure per wave, and due to the cost and the figure style, I think that's a good fit for my collection.

For those curious about scale, he's almost exactly the same height as Siege Megatron, just a smidge taller. His humanoid proportions are a little oversized--he has a bigger head, and some of his body segments are larger--so he feels scaled a little bigger even when he's not taller. He'll stand out in a Generations collection for his design much more than for his size.

While the first wave of Super7's Transformers Ultimates lineup is hitting collectors' mailboxes now, a fourth wave of this officially licensed, non-transforming action figure line has been revealed. Leaving behind the fun choices in the first three waves which included characters from Action Masters, Pretenders, the Sunbow cartoon and IDW comics, this wave only consists of two G1 repaints and another G1 standard bearer. This decidedly G1 wave will bring collectors a regular version of Starscream, Soundwave and the corpse of Optimus Prime, officially called "Fallen Leader Optimus Prime" just as Super7's Reaction version of the dead Autobot leader is.

As with previous waves, these are "Made-to-Order" figures, but thankfully the pricing continues to hold steady at $55 per figure. Images of the three figures are below, and pre-orders are available now through Super7's website as well as via our site sponsors TFSource, BigBadToyStore, and The Chosen Prime.

while I absolutely love super 7 various ultimates lines, I'm not really a fan of these. I dig the action masters ones, but the g1 toon ones feel like their proportions are all out of whack. I know the sunbow toon had wildly differing proportions and scales from episode to episode, but still these just don't look right to me. Like the heads are too big, and the bodies too baloon-y. one less thing I have to spend my money on though so that's a plus.

I do have to agree that this isn't as "Wow" as the other waves, but I am not surprised they decided to do a bit of padding by giving us two expected redecos and that popular radio guy. I'd imagine people very much wanted a normal colour Starscream. I am a bit disappointed that neither Starscream nor Soundwave come with Action Master goodies, though.

I'm torn about these Super7 Ultimates. They look nice. The packaging is way more premium than I want. They're about an inch or two too large. The accessories are nice. These worked really well for Action Masters Bombshell and Banzai-Tron, especially since they included their Action Master partners and even put the Action Masters logo on the back of the box (which I think is the first time that logo has been used officially in 30+ years). I'm less excited about Ultimates items such as Starscream with derpy face. I can't help but think that sales for the first wave didn't do well, so they course corrected to included more mainstream characters (plus troop builders) and are steering clear of deep-cuts like Action Master Bombshell.

Optimus is a rip off. Compare what you get from regular Prime to dead Prime for the same price all because the dead one's chest opens.

I wouldn't say it's a ripoff. They remolded the head and the torso. Who wants a surfboard and basketball with Dead Op? Maybe a tombstone with RIP OP, but I'm good with the molded head and torso.

It's not like he comes with two torsos, they just swapped one for another that just happens to have two extra parts on his chest. And no, obviously a surfboard would be silly, but maybe a cardboard and plastic deathbed or a crying Daniel figure, options are out there.

Cutting my preorders down on these to just Grimlock, Tarn, Bludgeon and maybe Gator Prime. Neat toys, but not spectacular and the materials feel cheap as hell.

Those are the exact ones I ordered along with Banzai-Tron, I just want Pretenders, Action Masters, and the guys that have never been officially released before (plus a cartoon accurate Grimlock). I'd buy Optimus Prime if ToyHax comes out with an Action Master sticker set with modified guns from the Titans Return set. And if they made AM sticker sets for the other figures like Megatron, Soundwave, and Tracks then maybe I could be convinced to pick up Bombshell. I like the idea of AM redos, it's the type of thing we should be seeing in RED, especially after they've given us random things like an overly copper Cheetor and battle scuffed Bumblebee.

Mainly because super7 are giving hasbro money to do these and are different sizes then standard RED I believe, like IDW Tarn, the prime crocodile etc.
While RED is a walmart exclusive, so they give hasbro money. In hasbro's eyes, who cares as long as they get money.

I was interested until I saw that these have LESS articulation than most of the RED figures. I was down to have something that's the same size as the Classified line.

On the other hand, the RED are very cheap looking.

Regardless, it's like comparing apple and oranges. Sure, both are fruits, both are round, yet they are completely different. RED are action figures while S7 are more like "posable" statues.

I got my Banzaitron last night from BBTS, and he's interesting. I actually like him more than I thought I would given other reactions to the figures. He did have a smell to him when I opened him, but that dissipated pretty quickly.

He's pretty neat. I like how he feels in hand, he has some weight to him and feels like he was well put together. Posing is decent but limited in range, but that is probably my main complaint and it isn't even that terrible, though notable in the improvement it could use.

The alternate hands are fun, and can help him be more expressive and make up some for the limited articulation range. I also like his sword and Razorsharp is pretty neat too, though I really wish he had at least had a joint to flip the gun out. Razorsharp probably only needed 3 or 5 moving parts total to be an excellent little update, but as is he is a simple accessory that is a solid piece, but is painted nice and can still combine with the gun.

So yeah, overall, Banzaitron is neat. He was one of maybe 3 revealed so far that I was interested in, and it is enough to convince me that Tarn will be worth getting, and it will make me consider Bludgeon some more too.

I plan to yes. Mainly because he comes with Nickel and I don't see her coming in her own release. But also because I think these are OK, and I would like a Tarn for the Cyberverse shelf, and the Super& one not transforming works for that as well. I think I'm going to sell my MMC one, use the Super7 for the Cyberverse, and the generations one on the main con shelf.

Man, they've delayed Ultimates Wave 2 and 3 AGAIN! Wave 2 was originally planned for summer '22, then fall '22 and now February '23 while Wave 2 went from fall '22 to winter '23 to July '23. These two waves were first announced in February '21! I honestly wonder if these will ever actually see release.

This is normal for Super 7, just wait for wave 4 to ship before wave 2.

I'd love to directly buy Bludgeon, not entering an eternal preorder limbo.

Yep, Tarn delayed to July 2023. Good thing we are getting Legacy Tarn, the delay only truly affects me adding a Nickel to the Scavengers
